Last football season (2012), me and my co-worker, Amos, started reminiscing about the good old days of playing paper football in school. And we talked about how we used to draw laces on them, or sometimes fold them out of brown construction paperor even draw our favorite team's logo on them.
It didn't take us long to come up with a hair-brained scheme to come up with some sort of paper football template, complete with NFL team logos on them, and then put them up on the web for people to download.
Well, I didn't get around to it until this season, but here they are!
On this site, you'll find paper footballs for all 32 NFL teams. Just scroll down and you'll see them.
To make your paper football:
- Click on the image to view full size.
- Right click and choose "save as".
- Save to you computer.
- Print out.
- Fold along the dotted lines.
- Beat your friends at paper football.
If you don't know how to make a paper football, or how to play paper football, I've added a couple of links to the right of this page that should help.
While folding your football, make sure you keep the printed side out and fold towards the team logo. You want the team logo on both sides of the football and the laces along the long side of the triangle.
I do have plans for making templates with the NFL, NFC and AFC logos as well as some "vintage" team logos as well, for all you fans out there that still miss the Houston Oilers or the old Tampa Bay swashbuckler.
I also have plans for a series with more realistic football textures and maybe even college teams.
If you have any questions or would like me to make a template for you (for your local high school team or fantasy football leage), feel free to email me at email@example.com
Have fun! GO BEARS!
